I was never disapointed in that restaurant. Deli sandwich or anything else is very good. Meeting friends or relatives for lunch and chat is perfect place to be. Parking available and at same time you can buy ready made food to take home.

I took my supplier for our annual smoked meat lunch. We had a delishious sandwich on onion buns including lots of coleslaw and giant dill pickle . The service was great and the food hit the spot . All was good at Center Street

Let's forget how unhealthy smoked meats are because, let's face it, how many restaurants don't load their food with fat, sugar and sodium to make it taste better than home? That said, this place gets by on reputation. The Pickle Barrel down the street gives larger portions, has more variety on its menu and charges less. They also don't charge... More

I like how they serve their deli sandwiches. Place needs a face lift. Food is generally good and portions are of good value. Service at times can be iffy.

So they sold it out to the employees. I think the bread shrunk and so did the sandwiches. It's too bad because I still think it's the best deli but if they fool around with the food they're serving and continue to increase the prices I won't be going there as much. Be smart about this. Word gets out the... More

The food is generally good deli food. The smoked meat sandwich is excellent...lots of meat....almost too much for the bread ...no butter ....just bread and meat. It's always busy and noisy. The prices have gone up in the last few months....still a good deli.

Ate there in a large group. The food was good and fast. While the waitress was VERY friendly she did mix up a lot order. Toast vs. bagels etc. Cream cheese was weird, but maybe it is a Canada vs. US thing but I don't know. Excellent coffee

I have been going to Centre Street Deli since I was a little boy. My family had been going to their parent restaurant, Snowden Delicatessen in Montreal for decades before that. This is my absolutely favourite place to go for deli. That staff have been the same for years and are extremely friendly and welcoming. Their deli sandwiches are second... More

We have never been to the Centre Street Deli for breakfast previously. The Cheese Boutique opened at 4 a.m. on Christmas eve, so we took some lemon-lime Gatorade to Afrim to help get him through the day and to buy some phenomenal cheeses for Saturday night dinner. We then hit the deli for breakfast before a quick trip to Nortown... More
